Robocopy is my go-to tool for quick file-level backups. Unfortunately it doesn't deal well with locked files (live databases, pst files, etc.). In those instances I deploy another great tool - DiskShadow that allows to tap into functionality of Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
This is the way it works:
Computer clocks withing whole domain run 5-6 minutes behind. Normally, authoritative time source for the whole domain is a Domain Controller (DC) that holds PDC Emulator FSMO role in the forest root domain. You can find which DC holds this role by running: netdom /query fsmo. Fixing time issues on this machine normally fixes it for the rest of the domain.
The DC in question was configured to receive time from an Internet NTP time source. However, running w32tm /query /source was returning: VM IC Time Synchronization Provider. This means the DC was receiving time from its Hyper-V Host instead of NTP Internet Time source. To resolve this, I went to Hyper-V VM Settings > Integration Services and disabled Time Synchronisation.
